    Boy someone is projecting hard.

    Britain made some of the best TV shows of all time, particularly comedies, so I don't know what you're on about there. Also why are you bringing up Hollywood and then talking about cable TV shows? Also don't you guys hate Hollywood?

    Hang on, are you even American?

    Okay, it's based on a novel, so that's a good sign. There are exceptions to this rule, of course. Heinz Rühmann did very good movies and was one of our best actors, too. But as a general rule, German TV productions these days are shite.

    I'd add almost everything Graham Linehan made. And the Thick of It. And the original Office and Little Britain and Bromwell High. And a pile of others.

    And Dr Who and Red Dwarf...

    I wouldn't know... The only German TV I've seen these past years are the antics of Böhmermann and whenever Hungary is mentioned on the Heute Show. But even if the stuff was good, it would still be drowned out by American and British works.

    God, please let it be a Russian mob squad driving to their homes... just this once, listen, dammit. :P
    I doubt as many trolls would bother creating burners if they had to post 100 posts in other subs. Besides, it would spread the workload to other mods.

    Their bit about Europe, amazing how it's still relevant today and how it explains the British attitude so well.

    They would just spam bullshit for 100 posts, takes them 5 minutes longer and back they are. In the meantime, those other forums are full of spam shit and their mods are not used to dealing with outright bullshit like that. I mean, seriously, as far as modding goes, I imagine GenOT and /politics are probably the worst biohazard on this forum. The amount of finely tuned "near-infractions" that regular posters like me are doing constantly probably gives them headaches on a good day. Like what I'm doing right now, by all rights I should be infracted for moderation discussion, but probably won't as long as I shut up about it within about 1-2 posts... :P

    Any useful discussion on this topic was shut down when the report came out. This chat thread is not constructive at all for the nothingburger it is.

    Trump is a racist.

    He has said things about brown and black people that might get us banned for even quoting. He describes them using the same language that white nationalists use, like "invasion." His administration is splitting up immigrant families and has banned people from random Muslim countries from entering. His dad marched with the KKK, and Donald himself made a 1page ad calling for the execution of 5 black accused rapists, and never apologized when they

    There is interesting discussion to be had when the details of the report are public, but probably not before. The legal battle to have it released is going to be pretty boring though.

    Not even invoking strawmen, just another lazy attempt at baiting people to pay attention to them.

    After reading a bit more on the subject... I don't think Mueller intended Barr to make any determinations on Obstruction as it's congress's job to make that determination.

    Notice how there are no quotes in Barr's memo that are complete sentences. We're missing a ton of context.

    Then there's the fact there are numerous other investigations into the president and the job he's done in office. The fact Trump is going to use this to go after his enemies shows his character, as if we need another example to prove he's a horrendous individual.

    He got nothing. Look elsewhere, deal with it politically.
    Trump's appointed AG Barr, who helped Republican cover ups before, refuses to release the report, not Mueller.
